Kids Church – Knowing God Better

Do you remember the four steps to reading the Bible if you want to know God better?

  • Pray (ask God to speak to you)
  • Read (the Bible reading)
  • Reflect (did you learn something about God? Did he encourage you? Did he challenge you to live differently?)
  • Respond (tell God how you feel about what you read; ask Him to help you do anything He has challenged you about; pray for the things on your mind for yourself and others)

The readings for Term 1 can be found below. Remember, if you have questions or want to share something fresh you’ve discovered about God, you can either email cnbckids@gmail.com or bring your discoveries and questions to Kids Church. Enjoy spending time with God and learning to hear Him speak directly to you!
